Locksmith Installing a Lock in an Office in Queens

We respond to calls as soon as we are contacted. This is how we have been able to build a reputation for ourselves. One of our regular clients from Queens NY locked herself out of her office. When she tried to open it using an old key, it broke and got stuck in the lock. When we arrived at the office, our initial plan was to remove the latch and open the door using alternative methods.  We tried removing the key using our sophisticated tools but we were unsuccessful. For this reason, we decided to install a new lock.

Installing the lock

We started by removing the old lock and bought an almost similar lock which we thought could fit in to the existing hole.

Our experts have the mechanical know how which make lock installation easier using basic tools such as a screw driver. They assessed the door and the existing holes. They realized that some of the holes used by the old lock could be used while some could not. For this reason, they covered the extra holes and drilled new holes in proper locations so that the new lock could fit well.

We started by installing the internal components. We opened the door so as to carry out this installation easily. We screwed he faceplate in to the side of the door after planning the wood around the hole to allow the faceplate to fit. We fitted the outside parts and all the internal parts of the lock and slid the knob in to place.

After ensuring that all the components were successfully installed, we screwed the retaining screws to hold all the components firmly in place.  We ensured that all the screws were screwed from inside to avoid instances where one could unscrew the lock from the outside and open the door. We then tested the door before handing over the keys to the client.
